    That sucks. I was really looking forward to some really long range shots when I got better rifles and scopes.

    Right. I'm honestly hoping its just a problem with me and my system having a breakdown or something. Best idea I can think of if they do limit it is have a buddy stand near the enemy and you bug out and see if your shots will hit

    Was like that in the Beta, 650m is the limit for targets, they disappear completely (it's purposeful - performance and rendering)

    I had a go at a few long kills last night before I logged off, unfortunately for me it was getting dark and one hell of a storm rolled through. Looking forward to build on this attempt as the game progresses. And my shot was in no way skill, for me it is a matter of luck whether the enemy came out from cover as the bullet dropped.



    The subject of sniping has ruffled a few feathers on the Ubisoft forums, like this post Why Track Range Kills When The Sniping Game Was Built By An 8yr Old?

    Ghost Recon: Wildlands - Sniper challenge

    I've seen a few youtube videos documenting kills in the 800s from the beta. Might be they have capped it since then - don't exactly know how I feel about that, since there's probably some reasons to it, with relevance to rendering and such. It does suck in that just this kind of contest is fun and keeps the game interesting and social in many different ways. As for the realism in bullet drop that some gamers are whining about, I'm not too bothered. There's hardly anyone talking about realism when a tiny 2 wheel drive 1985 Toyota hatchback with a baby seat and six bags of groceries in the back, scales a mountain side like a friggin' goat.

    There's lots of Beta content of shots ringing out well into the 1km mark, these all are done with heavily assisted time consuming bad-assery from team mates, since from 650m onwards you're in fact blind firing.

    current bet record is something like 1042

    That kind of sucks then. I could get not rendering every enemy across the map but they ups implement a way to where targets you drone tag stay until they die.

    On this point I very much agree, we'll watch and see, lots and lots of community chatter on the topic of long range sniping (in an open world Ghost setting)

    Can still be fun, this is where community kicks in, so what we can't do the over 650m without it being "luck" (for now, we'll see there will come an update I'm sure) we can still see who gets the 650 shot first...

    What about longest pistol kills - with video proof of course...

    Think outside the box - games are what you make it.
